Aubagio

Has anybody here taken Aubagio? My neuro is thinking about a change to my meds, because I've had the infamous post-injection reaction to Copaxone too many times. Also because I haven't had an MS relapse for over 3 years, but I don't understand her logic there: if Copaxone has stopped my relapses, please don't take away my Copaxone!

Note to this comm's Mod: please can we have an 'Aubagio' tag?

I'm so glad you have a doctor who you feel so comfortable with. That's SO important!

And well, I'm so sorry! My stupid brain is US-centric so unfortunately I just presumed that you were in the same country as me. The 3 doses/week Copaxone was just approved in the US.....maybe 4-6 months ago? I don't know if it's in other countries at this point or when it was or will be approved anywhere else. The long-standing dose is 20mg/1ml, but the 3 doses/week is 40mg/1ml, I believe. </p>

Whatever the case, I hope you can either stick with your Copaxone or if you switch that your new medication is as effective for you as this has been!

(And yes, I'm the one who recently started Tecfidera. Thanks for the well-wishes on it! So far, my relapses/progression seem to be substantially slower/less than when I was on Copaxone. Fingers crossed that when I have my 1 year follow up MRI that THAT will agree! ;-)
